What LID and Sustainable Design Means to Me!

11 11 2008

From the lecture on November 30, Carmine Militano from Stantec enforced the importance of low impact development and sustainable design among other topics.  These two had the most impact on me because we are entering into a new era in which changes are going to have to be made in the way we design our buildings.  The sooner we all realize this, the sooner we can improve the quality of our environment, buildings, and our lives.

He said that a “healthy environment, strong economy, and social well being equals sustainable development”.  Sustainable development to me is important and its role in the way we design will contine to increase with time.  As we become more familiar with these building alternatives, we can think of innovative ways to integrate them into our design process.
